Bless Remains Cursed, Shutting Down Again

Bless Unleashed on consoles.

At this juncture you’d be forgiven for assuming Bless Unleashed is part of some kind of ongoing financial scam, as Neowiz announced this week that the game will be shutting its doors on consoles by the end of the year. Now it’s worth noting that this is the third failed launch of the IP, the first being Bless, the second being Bless Online. The series has, as of yet, persistently failed to remain online for more than about three years before sunsetting and rebooting under a slightly different name. Not that this has stopped the developers from trying again, if you count persistent mediocrity and minimally viable products to be “trying.”

Bless Unleashed on consoles will shut down November 30.

We’ve been publishing Bless Unleashed in partnership with Round8 since 2020, and we’ve enjoyed our time with our wonderful players. Unfortunately, this time is coming to an end. Our agreement with Round8 has come to an end, and we will not be able to continue supporting the game.

The Windows version of Bless Unleashed launched on August 6, 2021. So by our metrics we should be hearing of that version shutting down sometime in February 2023. Bless Unleashed on PC has lost 98% of its concurrent userbase since its launch 13 months ago.
